Sorry, I don't think I can help you much with this one.

@xiota: not the whole command line, but you can see from the output that yay is used.

@Mr.Smith1974: this or very similar issue has been fixed about a month ago in the latest yay version. Possibly you just need to update it before installing this package. If you are unsure you can post output of yay -V.

@Mr.Smith1974 hg is provided by mercurial which is already in makedepends. What commands are you using to make this package?

@trinitronx Squashed and applied your patches. Also changed some formatting and updated srcinfo. See commit log for details.

@xiota: There is an upstream bug causing segfault in atsc_epg for 64-bit systems using int to store address. Upstream Debian bug #779520 has a patch to use size_t instead which fixes the problem. I've tested and verified it works on x86_64.

PKGBUILD changes to apply this patch are on my GitLab fork here:

To pull & merge:

git remote add trinitronx
git fetch trinitronx fix-64bit-segfault-patch-bug779520
git checkout -b fix-64bit-segfault-patch-bug779520 trinitronx/fix-64bit-segfault-patch-bug779520
git checkout master
git merge fix-64bit-segfault-patch-bug779520

Whoops, sorry for confusion and thank you for the maintenance!
